Councilmember Jawando to Hold Press Conference on Bill 30-21 Limiting Rent Increases and Late Fees for Tenants

On Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 12:30 p.m., Councilmember Will Jawando will hold a press conference with residents who have been impacted by evictions and rent increases to discuss the community impact of Bill 30-21, Landlord-Tenant Relations – Restrictions During Emergencies – Extended Limitations Against Rent Increases and Late Fees.

The 2020 legislation, the COVID-19 Renter Relief Act, limited the increase of residential rents during the catastrophic health emergency declared by Governor Hogan on March 5, 2020. Under the COVID-19 Renter Relief Act, the limitation on rent increases lasts for 90 days after the emergency expires. The public hearing on this bill is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, Sept. 14 at 1:30 p.m.

Who: Councilmember Jawando, Delegate Jheanelle Wilkins and impacted residents.

What: Press conference on Bill 30-21.

When: Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021 at 12:30 p.m.

  2. I have asked Will Jawando’s office if for every dollar of property tax he reduces on my rentals, I would double the reduction of rent.

    Forget about nonsense limited increases. I’m willing to go further. However I get no response.

    Perhaps it’s because I tell him he’s full of poop and that’s offensive? I find poor families being messed up in MC even more offensive.

    $2 for $1. Why not help my Hispanic tenants with 2 kids.

    My guess is because by not accepting or even answering…”He’s full of poop”

    Anyway, if you can help me to help my tenants, I’d appreciate it. They’re struggling and I’ve already given them free rent and reduced rent over the last 2 years.
    Perhaps they can choose Jawando’s alternative, eat MC public crap schools.

    But RE tax (Jawando’s salary) is the biggest expense I
    (they) have.

    Do you realize that I’m a millionaire and I pay less RE tax for a larger home than my tenant? True!

    By the way, why Village Square West pays less in property tax than my similar adjacent rentals in Bethesda Park is another shameful situation but I’m guessing the useless fact finders at Moco have no idea about real investigative journalism so what the hell. Jawando? In my opinion he could be an employee of village square west, southern management, etc.
